Hello i am having sky fitted on multiroom but want to keep my virginmedia subscription for broadband and tv. I have took the cover off the socket and on entering the socket there is just a blue cable and blue/white cable.

Do i just need to tap on to the terminals to another socket to add one?

Any help appreciated,would love to get this done this weekend

You should see an extra terminal on the socket marked 3-this should be connected for an extension along with 5 & 2.
And with standard telephone cable, just wire from the main jack to your extension as follows:

2 - Blue/white
3 - Orange/white
4 - White/orange (not needed, but often connected for neatness)
5 - White/blue

(Blue/white means blue with white bands, white/blue means white with blue bands, etc.).
